Pat Shortt joins appeal for missing man Gerry McCann
The missing man was last seen on Thursday morning.

IRISH ACTOR AND comedian Pat Shortt has joined the appeal for information about the whereabouts of Gerry McCann, an actor missing from Dublin since last Thursday.

McCann, 47, was last seen in Stillorgan, south Dublin last Thursday morning at around 10am.

Described by Shortt as a “lovely, lovely, soft-natured man” McCann has appeared in episodes of Fair City and Raw.

“It’s very much out of his character not to be in touch with his wife, Andrea,” Shortt told RTÉ’s Morning Ireland.

Shortt said that when he worked with McCann he would often be in touch with his family and said that it was out of character that he wouldn’t have got in touch.

“I suppose the whole message to people out there is if you do see Gerry to go up to him and talk to him,” Shortt said, adding: “It would be a huge help to the family if anybody could spot him.”

McCann is described as being about 5′ 10″ in height, of medium build with blonde to grey hair.

When last seen he was wearing charcoal grey jumper, brown trousers and brown shoes.

Anyone with any information regarding his whereabouts is asked to contact gardaí in Blackrock at 01-6665200, the Garda confidential line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
